Give the gift of better golf!


The best holiday gifts you can wish for? I’m biased. An extra 30 yards off the tee; mid-irons you hit consistently straighter; a wedge that delivers one hop-and-stop; and a putter that’s more magic wand.

If any of these items are on your list, don’t hesitate to swing by the shop to discover your gift of golf. Whether it be new clubs or lessons to improve your game, you can find them here. No need to wait until next season to get a jump on the competition.

Hole more putts

 
Roll your ball like a Tour Pro
 
Combine the correct putter loft with your angle of attack into the ball and you will notice immediate improvements on the greens. It is crucial to have loft at impact to lift the ball out of the depression its found in at address.
 

 
Which image illustrates you at impact?
 

 
Having the incorrect hand or ball position for your putter’s loft will cause:
 
Poor roll (bouncing).
Poor distance control.
Off-center strikes.
And failure to start the ball on line.
 
Become a world class putter
 
Starting the ball on your desired target line is directly impacted by how much loft you
have at impact. Do you know if it’s your putter or your technique stopping you
from becoming a world class putter? Let us help you find out.

Playing the wind

 
“Check” your rage in at the door
 
Hitting into the wind? Speed is not necessarily your friend.
Speed creates spin, and spin creates lift. So don’t fight the wind with power.
The saying is actually “when it’s breezy, swing easy”.
Here are four things we’d like to see you practice to enjoy golf in the wind.
 

You’re going to lose distance, so is it a 1 club,
2 club wind. Go up another club.
Now choke down on the grip, shortening the swing arc, reducing clubhead speed, but adding control.
 
 
Make sure your weight is a little more on your front foot at address. Pull the ball back in the stance, to deloft the club further. Now make a shorter swing, making sure your hands are ahead of the clubface at impact. Concentrate on tempo. Don’t try to force the shot. 
 
When you’re watching golf on the television, and there’s wind about, watch the player’s tempos. It’s almost like they work even harder on a good tempo in the wind.
 
Tempo is good to practice
 
Why not dedicate a whole practice session just to tempo.
Choose a target and go one club higher than you would usually choose.
Choke down. Ball back slightly. Swing with a good tempo and watch the ball flight. Is it lower?
More accurate? Does the consistency of ball strike improve?
